Good Hotel Guide Review

‘On our umpteenth-plus-one visit, we found it as wonderful as ever,’ a devotee writes this year. When Elizabeth Perrée’s parents opened their guest house in a 16th-century farmhouse in 1948, it had just three bedrooms. Today, there are 22, some in nearby cottages, all individually styled, with a neat, rustic feel. The low, whitewashed main building is swagged with roses. The ‘helpful’ staff are ‘marvellous’. The whole is a picture of laid-back charm on this rugged, car-free ‘paradise’ island – ‘like stepping back into the past’. There is no TV (though Wi-Fi can be arranged); guests relax in front of the log fire in the beamed lounge or, in good weather, ‘on the many seats scattered’ in the flower-filled gardens. ‘I read lots of books, or write bits of books – which I could never do on a more hectic holiday.’ Days are devoted, the hostess confirms, to daydreaming, wandering, exploring. In the restaurant, chef Colin Day’s dinners are ‘superb’. Guests enjoy classics with a twist, each made with the freshest local produce – meat from the family’s farm, crab and lobster landed daily. Vegetarians are happily catered for. (John Barnes)

Guest comments

'We go every 18 months. It is as wonderful as ever. The staff are very helpful. The food continues to be superb. We like to sit and read on the many seats scattered around the garden, and enjoy the wondnerful views. ' - John Barnes - September 2015
'Our 21st holiday on Sark, and our umpteenth visit to this little paradise. It is still wonderful. The staff are always charming, polite and elegantly presented, like the food, which is superb: the style and portions are such that it is a renewed pleasure every day. We had a stunning lunch in the garden before getting the boat to Guernsey on our way home. ' - John Barnes - May 2014
'We had a superb few days at this unusual small hotel. It is like stepping back in the past with no television and no Wi-Fi. The staff are attentive and friendly and the owner, Elizabeth, very welcoming. Everything is spotless with new towels provided whenever they were used. The food is excellent with a new menu each night and the wines are very reasonable. ' - David Lundie - July 2013
